Abstract
Sampling the rapidly changing environment of the Shuttle cargo bay is a challenging requirement. In our approach to meeting this requirement, 1 four time-integrated samples and one rapid acquisition sample were collected to determine the types and quantities of contaminants present during ascent and descent of the Shuttle. Residual gas analyses were made prior to opening the bottles after flight, and analyses for volatile organics were subsequently performed. Analyses for the presence of reactives (HC1 during ascent and NO, NO2, and NH3 during descent) were also completed. Pressure profile measurements were obtained to help determine the standard volumes of the sampled environment.
